Selmer Mark VI tenor sax 91xxx silver plated

Selmer Mark VI

Tenor sax 91,xxx

Original silver plated (85%)

French engraved

$ 9,500

 
This is a very nice original silver plate 91,xxx which until recently was owned by Lawrence Feldman (top NYC studio musician – Bob Mintzer big band, Barbara Streisand, Tony Bennet, etc). Lawrence played this tenor for a while as his main horn. The horn is in great shape. There are no resolders. The bottom bow and the neck are in great shape. A very small but sharp ding was removed from the bell flare (please see pictures).
 
The horn retains approximately 85% of its original silver plating with the main wear on the key touch points and the side of the neck. The plating loss on the right hand side of the neck is possibly a result of a neck repair at some point in the past - it is hard to tell for sure as the neck is now in perfect, original shape.
 
The horn features a high F# and the original Euro engraving looks stunning and is really crisp and sharp under your nails. It has reasonable new pads with plastic resonators and we have gone completely through the horn to ensure it is in perfect playing condition.
 
It is indeed an outstanding player! It is colorful, yet has the focus and punch that the 90,xxx series are known for. A well balanced sound that is quite powerful when you push it. There is a super strong and resonant core weight to the tone that keep the sound together at all dynamic levels. A very versatile horn with a great legacy and a proven track record!

If you have any questions about this horn, please feel free to give us a call at 212-683-2985 or email us at info@kbsax.com.
